  • Extended description

    Argentine-born Major Ernesto Che Guevara, the legendary revolutionary leader and 'Comandante' of the Cuban Revolution, was interviewed by RTÉ at Dublin Airport, when as Cuban Minister for Industries he was travelling on a diplomatic mission.

    On his way from New York to Algeria after a meeting of the UN General Assembly, Che Guevara's flight was redirected from Shannon to Dublin due to fog. While weather-bound in Dublin he spoke to RTÉ reporter Sean Egan.

    Aer Lingus air hostess Felima Archer acted as interpreter while Che Guevara answered questions about the political situation in Cuba and recent threats on his life.
